Yorath, Terry It was a time in the 70s when we had a Centre-half who was generally derided and signed from Huddersfield together with Trevor Cherry, who was an excellent player. He was out of his league-hopeless! In those days people would watch the players going in to the dressing rooms by a side entrance, and as As Terry walked up, a man asked, 'Are you playing, Terry? On replying No, a look of distress came to the man's face. 'Is ------- playing'? 'Yes', came the reply. 'Then you must be a ---------- bad player, then'! came back the reply. Terry managed to stifle a laugh, but smiled broadly.

Yorath, Terry Couldn't force his way into the SuperLeeds team so moved on.A tough tackling midfielder,when he was at Leeds he could at times look a little clumsy but played his best football after leaving.
